Every few weeks we send out a newsletter to over 180,000 people. In the next newsletter, we're going to do something unique...something that we hope will uplift and inspire thousands of people across the globe.

Let me explain:

First, we wanted to invite all of you to blog on "kindness".

Your blog can be about anything you want, as long as it fits with the theme of "kindness." Here are a few suggestions:

1. A story about when you were kind to someone else
2. A story about someone else showing kindness to you
3. A poem about kindness
4. A list of service ideas
5. Anything else you want
6. If you don't have a good story, go out and do something good for someone else, blog on it, and sign back in here.

Then, we'll be featuring several "kindness" blogs in the next newsletter and we'll link back to this thread too. Potentially, your blog could get seen by thousands of scrapbookers worldwide.

We're hoping that this exercise will spread positive acts of service, uplift, and inspire us all to do something kind for our neighbors. Sure it may be grandiose, but it's certainly possible.

Once you have blogged, make sure to post here and sign in. Let the kindness begin.

Prescription for Kindness

ps: The hyperlink tool within blogs do not link it with a name you give it, just the actual link text, is that a bug or something?

Well, I don't know if this qualifies, its just a little thing for just a little guy but here it is: Last spring when I was in our back yard with our, the smallest dog kept trying to get to one of our old kennels.The dog was very insistent! I didn't want it to get bit by a wild critter so I put them up & went & found it was a young grey squrrel that had a snare tightly around its neck! Through its heroic effort to get loose the snare had slipped & was squeezing its little body & it was having difficulty breathing. I picked it up, removed the noose, it kind of shook its head & took off! Even my dogs were glad to see it go.But if it weren't for my dogs the poor little creature would have strangled. And the little guy still comes for his peanuts. Not a human story but shows dogs can have empathy & even compassion too!
I added my dogs rak to my blog:)

I decided to join this one since it seems like all my blog has had since I started was negative things in it. Needed to add some positives to it!

I hope that I did this correctly. Here's my blog about kindness. After reading some of the other replies I came to realize that I had done something else as well. I have been growing and cutting my hair for Locks Of Love since 1998. It takes me 2 years to go from chin length to the bottom of my back (about 14 inches). I just keeping growing it to cut it for donation. I have a braid so maybe this will turn into a LO. Thanks for even more inspiration!
